developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping tabs on the u.s. military's response to what's going on as well. let's go to jill first. she's watching what's going on. jill, what's the latest over at the state department beyond the heartbreak of a top u.s. diplomat, three others killed? >> right, wolf. just in a few minutes we're expecting an update, a briefing on background by senior officials here at the state department. but for now this is what we know based on the conversations and what we are hearing fro

to know our best current assessment. >>chris: the last question, terror cells in benghazi carried out five attacks since april including one at the same consulate, a bombing at this same consulate, in june. should u.s. security have been tighter at that consulate given the history of terror activity in benghazi? >>guest: obviously we did have a strong security presence and, unfortunately, two of the four americans who died in benghazi were there to provide security. obviously it wasn't sufficient in the circumstances to prevent the overrun of the consulate. this is among the things that, obviously, will be looked at, as the investigation unfolds --. >>chris: could it have been stronger? >>guest: is why we have upped our presence in tripoli and other parts of the world. chris, we have to see what the assessment reveals. obviously, there was a significant security preparation defending our consulate and our other facility in benghazi and that did not prove sufficient to the moment. >>chris: ambassador rice, thank you very much for coming in today and discussing the fast-moving developments i
believe to be a terrorist act, against our consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. i'll have some questions to ask the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter h
events go today. remember those killed in benghazi in libya. we know the name sean smith. other man, chris stevens, held in very high regard from all of his colleagues. martha: tragic and violent death in benghazi. continuing coverage on all this on "happening now" starts right now. we'll see you here tomorrow. jenna: thank you, bill and martha. we start off with this fox news alert on the fallout on deadly attack on americans in the middle east. levens years to the day from 11. that is important as as we continue to explore the story i i'm jenna lee. jon: is the timing more than a coincidence? i'm jon scott. the white house ordered beefed up security at diplomatic posts around the world after an angry mob goes on a rampage in benghazi, libya. firing machines guns and rocket propelled grenades. it was outraged over an film from by an american that insults the prophet muhammad. it killed the ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. stevens becomes the first ambassador killed in the line of duty in more than three decades. libya not the only scene of violence directed at am
the attackers in benghazi was part of a plot not a mob that de test add movie. >> i think it is pretty obvious it was predetermined and preplanned all of the signs point to it. egyptian warnings in the jerusalem post things that happened it is heavy weapons you don't bring heavy weapons to a protest. i think it was absolutely predetermined. >> i had plenty of bullets my way in libya they couldn't hit the side of the barn. this seems pre-meditated. predetermined does that mean al qaeda? >> i think the administration is being quite careless right now coming out confidently with jay carney and ambassador saying it wasn't predetermined it was about this film. even though they have the knowledge they don't have the investigation yet. the ambassador is typically in prip polly not benghazi. it is tough to say. i think it was predetermined. >> should the consulate been beefed up ahead of time given the warnings we mhave had? >> i think anybody in my profession or the security profession in general would have said the security needed to be beefed up. the history of violence there and the threat that co
it. >> chris: let's talk about the attack on the u.s. consultate in benghazi that killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. the top libyan official says that the attack on tuesday was quote his words preplanned. al-qaeda says the operation was revenge for our killing a top al-qaeda leader. what do we know? >> we are obviously investigating this very closely. the fbi has a lead in this investigation. the information the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned premeditated attack. that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. people gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heav heavy weapos which unfortunately are quite common in post revolutionary libya and that then spun out of control. we don't see at this point signs this was a coordinated plan premeditated attack. we will wait for the results of the investigation and don't want to jump t
of those that were killed in benghazi, libya. president clinton will be delivering brief remarks. we're told that the first lady will be at that ceremony. this is supposed to happen about 2:15 this afternoon at andrew's air force base. let's go to tunisia. no north africa protesters have breached the u.s. embassy, the capital in tunisia. our journalist is joining us from tunisia, and i understand we lost that connection. we're going to get back to him and go on to another story, and many of the protests. what we are seeing here. we mention this -- this is the black flag. this is being carried by people in the crowd representing islam. it is called the shahada, the first pillar of islam, written in white letters. it says, quote, "there is no god but allah and muhammad is his messenger." it is an affirmation of faith. we want to bring in the crowds of angry egyptians are fighting with police in cairo right now. their anger aimed in part at the united states. you see those pictures. those people are climbing the walls for four days around the american embassy many tahrir square. you hav
into the election. >> and yet his numbers have gone down since what happened in benghazi, we have seen that the presidented is not as strong on foreign affairs. and it was interesting joe emeka talked to the former president clinton and they asked him whether or not this was a mistake not to meet with other foreign leaders and he paused with what might be considered an uncomfortable pause and then he said this. >> looked to me like again from observing it that the president was reluctant to have one meeting and in the u.n. schedule where normally he'll have 15 because of the nearness of the campaign. >> and as we watch the presidentpresident presidented arriving at the united nations, what about the optics of this? >> i think he couldn't have had one meeting with bibi netanyahu and walked away. if he did this, would he have had to meet with several people, morsi, other allies in europe. i'm surprised that it came down to one or none. it should have been several or none. none being the political calculus and several being the white house presidential calculus. >> let's it talk about the
heart that i rise today to speak about the horrific attack yesterday on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed four american citizens. sean smith and ambassador chris stevens are among the identified. i didn't know sean smith. i know he is a great american who served his country. but i have gotten to know chris stevens quite well. in his death, the libyan people have lost a great champion and believer in the peaceful aspirations of their democratic revolution. the american people have lost a selfless and dedicated servant of our interests and our values. and i have lost a friend. my thoughts and prayers today are with chrises family and his loved ones and those of his fallen colleagues. our first order of business now is to make sure that our citizens living in libya and egypt and elsewhere across the region in the world are safe. americans look to the government in libya and egypt and elsewhere to meet their responsibilities in this regard. they also look to the libyan government to ensure that those responsible for yesterday's attack in benghazi are swiftly brought to justice. in
